I had an encounter with trojan JS/IEStart.gen.d and the process of its removal by the virus app meant deletion of a file called HB.reg.

Further instructions were to "replace HB.reg with good copy".

Trouble is HB.reg ain't anywhere to be found. Neither on the OS install CD, nor the hard drive or the web.

Can anyone clear up this miniscule mystery for me?

Thanks and appreciation.

I think hb.reg is (was) part of adware or trojan? "ezsearch" or some such "add-in" to IE that you wanted like a third nostril...

Copy it off somewhere safe and delete the original, you should run regclean and probably wont need it.
